Make Your Breakfast Super-Healthy With These Simple Tips

Aren’t we all used to making new health resolutions and fitness targets at the turn of every new year? Most of the time, we find ourselves jettisoning our health goals mid-flight, especially when it comes to what we eat. Eating a healthy breakfast is a perfect opportunity to fuel your body with the essential nutrients it needs for the day, including calcium, protein, and fiber. And while there’s still some debate about the role of breakfast in weight loss, one thing that is not in doubt is that you need to eat a healthy breakfast. So, how can you make the most important meal of the day healthy? Here are a few considerations.

Make a healthy protein meal

Be sure to include a lot of protein in your breakfasts, as this will not only fuel your muscles for the day but will make you feel full and less likely to overeat during the day. For example, no matter what you’re having for breakfast, you can always add sides like egg whites, whole eggs, or even some low-fat Greek yogurt, which is also very rich in protein. You can also add options like peanut butter, almond butter, cheese, or low-fat milk. All these are excellent options as long as you take them in moderation.

Add some veggies to your breakfast
You probably know all you need to know about the benefit of eating veggies, but somehow, you find yourself skipping them at every chance. You can start small with a healthy breakfast sandwich, taking time to load it with a vegetable salad combination of your choosing. You can also try a bombay sandwich recipe. To help you save time, you can prepare your vegetable salad the previous night, store it in a refrigerator, and retrieve it when you’re ready to eat.

Add some fruits

From veggies to fruits, adding one fruit or two to your breakfast is one of the best ways to get your healthy dose of vitamins, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium. You can add a variety of fruits to different breakfast options. For example, a simple oatmeal breakfast goes pretty well with some strawberries or some sliced bananas. You can also pick from any fruit in the season of your choice. Apples, oranges, and grapefruits are also a great addition to any breakfast meal, although you can also have them on-the-go. Although you can have them in juice form, it is best to take them whole, to benefit from their rich fiber content.

Don’t forget the carbs

Your body needs enough energy to burn during the day, especially if you’re expecting an active or busy day ahead. So, be sure to include some whole-grain serving to your breakfast. Many people make the mistake of skipping carbs entirely in an effort to avoid gaining weight, which only leaves them fatigued during the day. If you’re trying to lose weight, opt for healthy whole grains instead. For example, a whole-grain breakfast cereal, cooked oatmeal, and a slice of wheat bread can be beneficial additions to your breakfast.
